Hey guys decided to start a build thread so I had a place to put all these pictures that I keep taking. I recently picked up a '78 pickup that needs a lot of work. I was able to drive it home, but I now realize how dangerous that was haha The previous owner chopped the front springs, realized it was too low, so he shoved wooden blocks under the springs. Front shocks were gone and the nuts securing the ball joints were barely finger tight. My plan is to totally go through the truck - interior, exterior, and motor/transmission. I'm planning on swapping in a 3rz and A340e from a 2wd automatic 4runner. I haven't found this swap in a pre-79 pickup but based on my research/measurements I think it will go smooth. I have my eye on two donor cars, hoping to start the swap in a few weeks.
